As a child, I was quite a tomboy: my best friend was a boy a few years older than me and we spent our free time playing as little boys played, we had toy sword fights, we climbed trees, and we tormented my female cousin as well as his twin sister. I never felt like a girl, maybe because I had a very girly cousin to compare myself against, but maybe just because I didn't relate. I got in fistfights more often than I played with makeup. In short, when I found out that I was never going to be a boy and my best friend was going to be a daddy but I had no choice and I was going to be a mommy, I was distraught. Fortunately for me, I've gotten over that and embraced the fact that I'm a girl... identity issues and all. So, have you ever felt like you didn't exactly belong to your gender?
